Jonathan Franzen is an American novelist and essayist with a net worth of $70 million. Jonathan Franzen has earned his wealth as a National Book Award winning author and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Franzen was born in Western Springs, Illinois and raised in Webster Groves, a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. He has been publishing novels since 1988.
Jonathan Earl Franzen (born August 17, 1959) is an American novelist and essayist. His third novel, The Corrections (2001), a sprawling, satirical family drama, drew widespread critical acclaim, earned Franzen a National Book Award and was a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction finalist. His most recent novel, Freedom, was published in August 2010.

When this plan fell through, they relocated to New York, in 1987, where Franzen managed to sell his first novel, The Twenty-Seventh City.
The Twenty-Seventh City, published in 1988, is set in Franzen's hometown, St. Louis, and deals with the city's fall from grace, St. Louis having been the "fourth city" in the 1870s. This sprawling novel was warmly received and established Franzen as an author to watch.
